Bag of sand celebrates 2nd birthday outside neighbour’s house


A bag of sand has now been sat for two years outside a man’s house, without any signs of it moving, or being used.

Peter Thape, (43) from Hartlepool, has assured everybody that he’ll be starting work on some nonsense or other, very soon.The sand was joined by three bags of gravel, a tub of whatever, and four thick pieces of wood 18 months ago.

Neighbour, Murial Hislop has noticed a growing trail of sand across the pavement, which runs from the tonne bag down to the grid, whenever it rains.

‘What is he waiting for? He can’t even park his car there!’ said Hislop.

‘Why won’t anyone steal it? You can’t normally leave anything round here,’ added Hislop.
